Kolkata: ‘Because India Comes First’ a book focusing on the most concise analysis of current political affairs and key government decisions, written by author & former National General Secretary Ram Madhav was launched today in the presence of Sangeeta Dutta, writer, academic and director.
Post the launch of the book, ‘Kitaab’ a literary initiative of Prabha Khaitan Foundation in association with ITC Sonar hosted an insightful discussion between Ram Madhav with Sangeeta Datta.
‘Because India Comes First’ delves into the decisions made by the BJP-led government over the last few years, diplomatic relationships with India’s neighbours and the confrontations with China.
The author enquires into Indian policymaking and asserts that going ahead, it must put India first.
He calls out liberal fascism, deconstructs our understanding of terrorism in India, argues that opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act is intellectually dishonest, explores how learnings from Black Lives Matter can be applied in the Indian sphere and explains why protests should be rooted in Martin Luther King Jr.’s non-violent approach and not anarchy.
The essays in this volume weave a broad tapestry of India’s growth into a soft power and predict how it will shape up over the next few decades.
This book is a must-read for those who believe in the new idea of India and for those who accept that there are two sides to every debate.
